    Lucille was my neighbor and since she moved to Georgia I have missed seeing her out in her yard and the beautiful flowers she always had growing on her fence and in her yard. I’m so sorry for your loss.

    Lucille was a sweet person and will always be in my heart!!!! Spent most of my young life at her house and always felt welcomed there. Went to see her before she moved to Georgia and we laughed and had a great visit. Will cherish this memories forever!
